  • Research Road Greenbelt, MD - Prince George's County
    There is a gate located at the top of Research Road separating "old" Greenbelt from the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC), which was replaced in late May 2011. Before this time, for as long as anyone can recall, pedestrians and bikers were allowed to use the roughly one-mile gated road section for low-impact recreation when it was closed to thru-traffic (nights, weekends, holidays). This is a lovely natural, peaceful setting where herons, foxes, deer, eagles, beavers, snakes, otters, rabbits, muskrats, geese, ducks and other wildlife can be sighted. Many Greenbelt residents walked or biked this road, not impeding on any research activities or otherwise disturbing the area. Before May there was even a side opening on the gate where people could pass through during its locked hours and further, it wasn't difficult to slide a bike under the old gate. After the new gate was installed, however, the pass-through was covered over and in July a sign was posted indicating "No trespassing" when the road is closed to vehicular traffic. Word trickling back from BARC is that the changes are "security" related, but it has been difficult to get a dialogue or real response from them. Also, it should be noted that there is another gate approximately one mile down Research Road (intersecting Beaverdam Road) which is left open. Greenbelt residents get the impression that it is them in particular that are being denied access. This new gate was installed without any notice to Greenbelt or its Council or any indication something was amiss. Greenbelt residents, me very much included, would like the pedestrian pass-through re-opened and for walkers & bikers to be permitted by BARC to once again use this roughly one-mile section of Research Road when it is closed to vehicles. We love and treasure this bucolic, peaceful locale very much and would like to continue to use it as we have for decades.

  • East-West Hwy & Toledo Ter Hyattsville, MD, 20782, USA - Ward 3

  • Greenbelt Rd And Mandan Rd Greenbelt, MD - Greenbelt
    This light has a camera; I don't know if this problem is used to increase the number of people running the light or not. The traffic light turns red for Greenbelt Rd when no cars are on Mandan Rd; it's like there isn't a sensor for cars on Mandan Rd, it just works using a timer. The length of time the light is green for Greenbelt Rd is much shorter than for Mandan Rd. This has been a problem for almost a year.

  • 27 Akin Ave Capitol Heights, MD - Capitol Heights

    5619 Jamestown Rd Hyattsville 20782, United States - Ward 5
    Is there any possible way to get speed bumps on Jamestown RD towards 31st? The street is already a one-way street, but sometimes people can’t seem to follow the rules. The speed limit in a neighborhood is a max of 25, but cars drive by with a higher speed. It’s very disturbing when children are outside playing, as well as when our cars have been hit. This isn’t the first time this has happened. Hope to hear from you.
  • 495 E / 193 E Ramp To 295 S Greenbelt, MD - Greenbelt
    This ramp is in bad shape, with lots of potholes and deteriorating previous repairs. Since folks from 495 are often moving full speed, this is hazardous, esp as sometimes they quickly switch lanes last minute to avoid. This has been in bad shape for many years and is only getting worse - is it ever going to get fixed?
  • 6339-6399 Belcrest Rd Hyattsville, MD, 20782, USA - Ward 3
    Drivers do not yield for pedestrians and often drive very fast. Request for better signs or a speed bump at the crosswalks near metro and on Belcrest Road.
  • 6215 Herald Street Hyattsville, MD, 20782, USA - Ward 3
    Cross streets Sentinel Drive and Herald Street. 12:09pm on 5/8/2020, The Edition Apartment complex, once again leaving trash bins on Sentinel Drive, blocking fire access lanes, under a clearly marked "No Parking" sign.
  • 6100–6110 41st Ave Hyattsville 20782, United States - Ward 3
    Cars use the area from corner of 40th and Oliver all the way down to Queens Chapel as a dragstrip. They routinely go upwards of 50 or 55 miles an hour. It is irresponsible of the city to have so long a stretch with just one stop sign and no speed bumps. There’s a huge flow of cars that goes straight from the liquor corner store, turns and then flies down this road. There are no less than 25 children that live in a two block radius. Please do not tell me to go house to house during this time to ask for a speed bump. This happens at least three or four times a day and a car has never been pulled over. A child is going to get hit by a car.
